Rhubarbs, Custards, and Other British Sweets

Think you know British candy? The Telegraph’s list of the UK’s 20 favorite sweets of all time is chockablock with goodies that might fly right over the head of your typical Yank. Here are the top five:

1. Fizzy cola bottles
2. Cola bottles
3. Rhubarbs and custards
4. Wine gums
5. Black Jacks

If you’ve never had cola bottles, they’re worth sampling. Done right, they’re a gummy bear with a complicated (if cola-inflected) soul.
